When seven-year-old Tabitha hears a message from Jesus while listening to a Bible story, she tells her three best friends -- Emma, Jacob, and Fu-Han (who are aged eight and nine). Intrigued by her experience, the friends find themselves wondering about how God speaks to people, and to kids in particular. And with that simple question, the God Detectives are born.
Adventures of the God Detectives is about a group of young friends who form a club to discover the variety of ways God invites us into a relationship. The book contains seven stories for children aged six to ten years old, and is illustrated with black and white line drawings. Each story includes "Notes for Adults," and "Questions to consider with Children," designed to help parents talk with children about spiritual experiences. Adventures of the God Detectives chronicles the discoveries Tabitha, Emma, Jacob, and Fu-Han make, as they meet a native elder and a Franciscan monk, encounter a little sister's "imaginary companion," interpret a dream, wrestle with their conscience, read the Bible, and pray.
